“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:44-45
Father, You are such a GOOD father! You are love itself! Every good thing comes straight from You, and You give good gifts both to those who love You back and those who don’t.
Daddy, help me to love those who don’t love me. As I receive Your love, may I pour it out even to those who will not return it. Even to those who will throw it back in my face. Help me love with Your love the way that You do!
God, I pray specifically for those who may not really like me and those who have judged me wrongly. They don’t realize what they are doing. God, I pray that You will overshadow them with Your grace and love, and that You will fill their hearts with the hope that only You can give. I pray that You will lead them into wide open spaces of freedom and into Sll the good plans You have for them. 🙂 Amen!
